Imam MalikHukum of continuously bleeding is same as of the woman in purity till 1. description of blood changes to that of menstruation and 2. bleeding continues beyond the minimum days of purityBased on narration from Fatima bint Abi Hubaysh (RA)
Imam ShafiShe should try to distinguish between the distinctive signs, but if she has had menstrual experience earlier, she should follow that experienceReconcile between the narration from Fatima bint Abi Hubaysh (RA) and that of Aisha (RA) by saying that the latter pertains to the women who can identify the number of days in a month and their timing, while the first one pertains to one who neither knows their number nor their timing, but recognizes the color of blood.
Imam Abu HanifaShe takes into account her normal days of menstruation(if she has menstruated before), otherwise, she passes the maximum period of 10 days of menstruationBased on the narration of Umm Salamah (RA) and of Aisha (RA)
